If you want to make the clay a bit less clay like add a bit of play sand till you get the consistency you’re after... good luck, looks like a fun project... keep the updates coming.

Lei is right about the difficulty / PITA factor.

I like his idea of foam floor... could stick a few holes in it, fill with sand or clay... might work. If it does, it will be much easier to manage.

For clay too you could consider getting a bag of kitty litter... the clumping clay variety is a bentonite clay from memory... I have used this in the past too and it caused no harm to fish.
It will be a bit cloudy when added or disturbed but settles quickly... a bag is cheap and would be worth experimenting with... if I was going to do a mudskipper tank, this is what I’d try.
